Sheikh Hamdan approves social benefits worth Dhs44n for People of Determination

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, has approved new social benefits worth Dhs44m for people of determination among citizens in Dubai.

Sheikh Hamdan said, “Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, constantly follows up on the work of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs and his directives are to transform the social sector completely. We are seeking to further enhance all services provided to our citizens as part of achieving our goal of providing them with the highest quality of life possible.”

The new social benefits represent another step in realising  Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid’s vision for empowering people of determination in Dubai, by enabling them to turn challenges into opportunities, achieve success in various fields, and providing them an environment that gives them stability and enhances their contribution to the development of Dubai and the UAE.


The new decision covers people of determination below the age of 60, who have physical or mental impairments that require them to be supported by others. The social benefits covered by the decision include fees for kindergarten establishments, schools, university programmes, and training and rehabilitation centres within specialised institutions, as well as the costs of providing shadow teachers, caregivers, personal assistants and sign language interpreters.

The benefits also cover assistive devices and technologies, rehabilitation of vehicles and various means of transportation and the costs of equipping the workplace to accommodate people with various types of disabilities. The number of beneficiaries of the new benefits will be gradually increased in the future to cover a wide section of the target segment.
